Re: NOOBS and RaspMC

Thanks for the rapid response. I just realized that and installed OpenELEC just fine. Hoping this will replace by big and bulky five year old desktop PC that's been acting as my media center.

NOOBS and RaspMC

I downloaded and installed Noobs 1.4.0 no problem. I selected to install RASPBMC and after it downloaded it said it isn't compatible with Raspberry Pi? Then it wouldn't boot at all. What's up with this?

Re: On/Off Switch

Yeah, power switch is somewhat problematic. I may splice into my 2.1A 5V power connector and add an in-line on/off switch. Actually I am looking at designing my own case, and may just add a switch with a USB connector on that. But it would have been really nice to have an on/off switch on the mainbo...

Re: WARN:hc_xfer_timeout

I've tried 3 cards: Kingston 4GB Class 4, PNY 8GB Class 6, Transcend 16GB Class 10 all with the same result. I can't even get it started. I know very little about linux and was hoping to delve into it a bit with Raspberry Pi. Heck with Debian I didn't even know to type: StartX to start the GUI. It w...

Re: Game testing and compatibility.

Thanks for starting this list. But isn't there a more comprehensive list somewhere? I'd imagine that there'd be quite a few games that should work with this hardware.

Most laptops are a flat ribbon cable, and any machine with an LED backlight has no inverter. Plus again, how to get video signal from the Raspberry Pi to the LCD.

But power is supplied through a ribbon cable, not exactly the easiest thing to manage. You can't really solder it. And sending video signal to the LCD would be another issue.

Re: Is there an intent to create a "netbook" or "laptop" type version?

<t>This is a great device. Looking to get these for my two young children if it becomes available in the USA. However, it would be fabulous if there was one designed into a netbook type machine with built in display, keyboard, and touchpad. I know this would obviously add cost, but I can imagine som...
